Could it be that Isildur1 subconsciously chose the name that reflected his destiny as a poker player? In the book, Isildur fell pray of his pride, taking on a dangerous journey alone and unprepared.

Looks like he banked the last 100k and that's that.

The only thing we can hope for now is "The epic rise and fall of Isuldur1 - The Movie"

I dunno, the extreme dissregard for the money intrigues me, what happend to this guy is a case of something I cant figure out yet, but I will.
He seem the right age for what he did, not a kid anymore but certanly not a man with responsibilities either, but still....from 2k to 10mill and back withing couple of months while playing against the best of the best, that's extreme to the core.
I cant figure out this dude yet.

For those that didn't know, Blom has ran up massive rolls in very short time before and then busted them. When he was 18 he wrote a blog about how he lost his entire $150k roll in one night and then going to school the next day, broke and having a ****load of schoolwork to do.

Looks like a loose canon yes, thats a given, I dont think that anyone would be crazy enough to stake him (maybe PA? who knows) but there is more to this guy then just being a reckless kid on a heater.

He took $6mil+ from durrrr. He's basically the best NLHE HU player in the world.

Re: *** The Official Isildur1 Thread ***

I would so much love to see Blom playing in the next seasson of HSP, seeing him playing live would explain so many things.
We must make this happen.
If the producers of HSP want to see a massive jump in ratings they should go out of their way to get him in there.

Re: *** The Official Isildur1 Thread ***

Can anyone give me a quick summary of what happened? I keep hearing he cheated, he is the best player, he made over 10 million, etc. Can anyone summarize this? Thanks.
